We did our scenic flight in March 2020. Before i book with them i read all their reviews and comments on the various sites and all were encouraging Air Shakawe. They proved it From booking until end of the flights all their staffs were very professional and help[ full. Special thanks to Amanda Reservation Manager. Brain Pilot, was awesome, we did not feel the Take off and landing. It was very smooth. Thank you Air Shakawe.

I have no words how amazing my time with them was ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. I'm a 24 French guy currently doing the tour of Africa with my bicycle. I really wanted to fly over the delta with a tight budget so I contacted them. The owner is a wonderful guy and when I told him that I was cycling for the last five months across Africa, he offered me... the flight....... Yes you heard right. People in Botswana are usually super nice but this is something else. I am so happy as the flight was awesome. The delta is beautiful from the air and I saw plenty of elephants, hippos, buffalos, zebras, giraffes and even spotted two wild dogs! The pilot was also a very nice person cause one of the passenger was a bit scared of planes and the pilot was really conforting and patient with her. Thank you to all Shakawe staff for this amazing experience!

We took three flights around the Delta on our break in November - all were bang on time and smooth. Charlotte and Abigail were very professional whilst at the same time, very friendly. The flights were one of the highlights of the holiday. Great pictures. We were privileged to be flown by Abigail on the day she got her full licence.

We had booked a flight to see the Okavango Delta with few advance. We found Air Shakawe a good relation of quality-price comparing to other companies. We bought a ticket for 80€ aprox for 1 hour flight in small aircraft for 4 persons. Brian, the pilot, show us animals: elephants, zebra, impala, cocodriles, rhino... and make an effort that everybody inside the aircraft could see the landscape from their window. Unfortunatly, the Okavango Delta, in august of 2019, was very dry but we enjoyed very much the experience because with aircraft, you can go more inside the delta.

WOW! The scenic flight was the highlight of our trip to Maun. We were worried about not seeing any water because of the drought, but we saw loads! Also saw tons of animals, a really different experience game viewing from the air: herds of elephants, giraffes, impala, hippos, crocodiles, ostriches, baboons, buffalo, wildebeest, zebras.Thank you George for arranging. Stewart our pilot was also so lovely and friendly. You MUST MUST MUST do this while in Maun, well worth it!
